World Mission Sunday October 24, 2021
On the weekend of October 23/24, the global Church celebrates World Mission Sunday. The theme of the weekend is “Witness of Life” as we recognize all those who “Cannot but speak about what we have seen and heard (Acts 4:20)” and share their testimony of love and compassion, embracing “everyone, everywhere” (2021 World Mission Message, Pope Francis). As an example of the theme, we have highlighted Sister Rose Hang Vu, from our archdiocese, who has dedicated her life to helping those suffering in Vietnam. And World Mission Sunday contributions have helped several struggling dioceses in Vietnam. Materials were forwarded to parishes on September 27. These are below for your convenience:
